Newmarket Jazz Festival

It’s already the middle of summer, and despite the heat, we hope you’ve been out in the weather, having fun. This weekend, the Newmarket Jazz Festival is the place to be for great music, fun activities for the kids, and food and vendors of all kinds.

Come out Friday night, 5:30-11pm – for the free t-shirts [first 500 ticket-holders], activities and music on two stages. On Saturday and Sunday from noon to 11pm and Monday from noon to 8pm, there will be more music, a Creative Kids Zone and special performances for the kids.

The vivaNext team will be there handing out scratch ‘n’ win cards, so stop by our booth and chat. And have a happy and safe long weekend!

Markham Fair

It’s that time of year again! The Markham Fair starts this Thursday and the vivaNext team will be there!

There has been a great deal of progress made on vivaNext projects since last year’s Fair – that’s why we encourage you to drop by our indoor booth for an update! We’re particularly excited about the progress of the Enterprise rapidway in Markham, which is due for completion by the end of this year. We’re also gearing up for more work on the Highway 7 rapidways. With plenty of information and great news to share, the vivaNext team is looking forward to answering your questions about rapid transit in Markham and York Region.

We hope that you enjoy the wide selection of food, live entertainment, activities and competitions the Markham Fair has to offer. This annual event is one of the oldest country fairs in Canada, and is a great way to spend time with family and friends, connect with the community, and welcome the fall season!

See you there!

Join us for the Davis Drive rapidway public meeting

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

Ever wonder how vivaNext will transform our community? We will be holding a public meeting this evening to discuss the Davis Drive rapidway project.

With the adoption of the new vision for Newmarket combined with the future opening of the regional cancer centre and current conditions along Davis Drive, it is one of the first rapidways to get under construction this fall.

Join us tonight to see a futuristic time-lapse video that depicts the evolution over the next few years. Speakers will present information on how the rapidways will put the rapid into rapid transit including preliminary phasing for construction and Newmarket’s vision for the future. More construction information will be available in the fall closer to the time when it will begin.

This evening’s meeting will be an excellent opportunity to not only see these plans, but to have your say in person.

Whether you are a resident, business owner or just curious about what rapidways will bring to the Region, please come to the public meeting.

If you can not make it to the meeting, all of the information will be available on our website and feel free to share your thoughts with us right here on our blog.

We look forward to seeing you tonight.
